The 10th stamp in the Celebrating Lunar New Year series will mark the Year of the Rooster, which begins Jan. 28, 2017.
The Postal Service will issue stamps next year to honor historic figures and achievements from the 20th century, along with offerings that celebrate contemporary cultural touchstones.
The historic stamps will commemorate civil rights champion Father Theodore Hesburgh, the 100th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s birth, and the Work Projects Administration, a broad-reaching program that provided millions of jobs during the Great Depression.
USPS announced the stamps Sept. 20.
